Dave Edwards today claimed he can be one of Wolves’ elder statesmen as he celebrated his new two-year Molineux contract.

The 28-year-old yesterday penned a new deal that will extend his stay with the club to eight and a half years.

And the former Shrewsbury man believes he can play his part off the field as well as on it as Kenny Jackett seeks a new core of senior players following the loss of influential figures including George Elokobi.

“We have got a young squad and I’m enjoying being one of the more experienced players who hopefully some of the younger lads will look up to,” said Edwards, who has made 181 appearances for Wolves.

Meanwhile, reports in France have linked Wolves with a move for AC Ajaccio’s teenage striker Issa Baradji.

The 18-year-old is reportedly available for around £400,000.

Nik, an amazing result by Holland and a truly wonderful first goal by RVP, but don't rule out Spain just yet, they can still qualify, regroup, and beat a poor looking Brazil in the next round.

Two observations, so far;

If this Brazil side do get knocked out early on, which country holds up the South American banner, ( let's hope it's not Uruguay!)

FIFA shouldn't allow Japanese to be referees.

C'mon Engerland, surprise us all!

Farmer Ted, I was thinking exactly the same thing , don't rule out Spain beating Brazil if they meet in the next round. I seem to recall East Germany beat West Germany in 1974 before the now banned Kaiser went on to win it.The over riding thing about last night: wasn't it a great game to watch. Reminded me of some of the other great games in prevous World Cups, Brazil v Hungary, '66, Holland against everybody in'74, Italy v Brazil '82. etc etc. At its best football takes some beating.


Nice one Nik. Like Cervantes, they'll be writing their memoirs in jail.


As a Clubman and role model there ain't many better than Dave Edwards at the Wolves.

I just hope he can stay injury free for the coming season as he will play an important part as KJ continues to build..

Cant knock Edwards for his loyalty and work rate,had a rough time over the last few seasons from fans including myself,but last season was great,so good luck Dave, stay injury free and show the same style as last year and you will do for me

As for Baradji, seen some You Tube clips, looks useful for a youngster 3 goals in 5 appearances last season,left foot, right foot and a header,looks strong and classy,lets hope if he comes hes not homesick in a month though


Apparently Leicester City are in for Baradji too..


On the dark side, the natives are up in arms as they announce a Everton youth coach as manager, jackthehat, it's not a funny world just now is it?
